Working with important dealer Paul Guillaume, his work appeared regularly alongside that of , and . Creixams’ vivid tones and broad brushstrokes are illustriously representative of the School of Paris in it’s prime. More recently, his work has been exhibited in major shows including in Perpignan and at the Sorbonne.
